Noon Tunes Concerts Continue At Downtown Library

Live music, food, and the Downtown Library.  Now there’s a trio everyone can enjoy.

Bring your lunch to the Downtown Library Atrium, 300 Park Avenue, on Thursdays in September and October from 11:30am to 1:00pm for “Noon Tunes,” a variety of musical styles that will go down smoothly with your sandwiches and sodas. 

“Our Noon Tunes has been one of the most successful series of events the library system has initiated in a long time,” said the Metropolitan Library System’s Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow.  “The short, informal lunch time concerts have been attracting downtown workers for a year now, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue the series.”

Visit the Downtown Library for some music to make you smile.  Bring your own lunch or purchase a sandwich or some soup at the library’s 1st Edition Café.
